Sidharth Taneja

Mobile Developer at Makemytrip.com

Introduction

I am working with MakeMyTrip Private Ltd (NASDAQ: MMYT) one of the largest Indian Online Traveling company in world. In my current capacity, I am working on Android Application of Makemytrip. Apart from this, I have also worked on several projects in Makemytrip like implementation of Couchbase lite in Android Application, making Hybrid App and React Native Mobile App, Automation of Android and iOS App using Appium, implementing Jenkins environment as build tool, creating lite App for low end devices, etc. Makemytrip is a large user base company so here I also get the opportunity to working on big data tools of Hive, Hydra and MangoDB.

I am an 85% physically challenged (Cerebral Pulsy) person and I do all my work with my toes. I take great pride in the fact that despite all my physical limitations, I am an IT resource above par with great temperament, attitude and undying spirits. I can pick up technologies in no time as per the requirements.

Prior to Makemytrip.com, I was working with Schooladmit.com. My role and responsibilities included working on analysing user behaviour depending upon their input and also guide the testing team with corner cases.

One of the most advance projects that I undertook at MakeMyTrip was “Couchbase Lite”. In this project, I have worked on end to end connection of Android App with Couchbase server using Couchbase Sync Gateway for retrieving the data in offline mode and also reduce the latency time.

Contrary to my experience shared above, my role at Makemytrip revolves entirely around Android App development and exploring new technologies.

Aside of my work-hours, I love to get involved in fostering the Open source community, participating and meeting minded people at conferences, both as a volunteer and a speaker.

Projects

  • During school time, I have created an Animation Game in C++ and it was nominated as project of the town.
  • In MakeMyTrip, I have created a framework for Android, iOS and Website which used to detect the platform automatically and executed the Automation Test Suite depending upon the platform.
  • I have created an inhouse distributed mobile farm environment which used to execute the Automation Test Suite in 20 devices simultaneously.  
  • I have worked on a project in which we implemented the couchbase lite in Android application of MakeMytrip. This was huge project and reduced the latency time of App drastically.
